Sports Illustrated's cover model for their swimsuit edition, Irina Shayk, is tall, lush-lipped and the girlfriend of a soccer player. It's not as if she'd have to do anything else much other than breathe in order to be positively contributing to humanity, right? Irina is putting her good looks to use in sell XTI footwear, although in classic advertising strategy, you might be hard-pressed (double entendre! Ooooo!) to figure out that's what's being marketed here. Since catching some ultra-high quality shots of Shayk out on the town last week and having people point out to me that she apparently doesn't shave her legs (to be fair, they were less hirsute than Alyssa Milano's arms, but still) I have to say that I never would have guessed that she requires Photoshop in the most unusual of ways, because her legs look super smooth here.
